This was our 3rd on the list, Magpie423, the legend from France and myself were all looking forward to this one. We had been given info on access points but it wasn't going to be as easy as we thought, we were getting close but unfortuanlly Michael the legend clapped his beady eyes on us...................so after having a good chin wag with him we were on our way....................well not exactly.............we eventually got in and started to put the camera in action. Although we had been told how good Michael was......................he proved to be too bloody good lol and we were caught again................so for the 2nd time in the space of 2 days we were escorted off site. We were all gutted but never mind always a next time :-)
History -
Severalls Mental Hospital near Colchester in Essex closed in 1997, Since then it has started on a slow spiral of decay. Severalls was built in 1913, housing around 2000 patients at its height. During the first half of its life Severalls bore witness to its share of Questionable practices. Doctors were free to "experiment" with new treatments on patients seemingly at will, These practices reached their climax during the 1950's. A change in management during the 1960's saw reforms introduced including the creation of art and music therapy programs and the widespread use of drugs and medication.
Since 1997 This 300 acre site has been left to run wild Vandalism and arson have begun to take their toll on the buildings, Severalls is rapidly going the same way as similar hospitals like Cane Hill and Hellingly.
